Education & Fellowship

Adult Education programs are offered throughout the year at 11 a.m. on Sundays after worship service. Topics range from members sharing their faith stories to discussions on world events.

Special programs such as a Spirituality Series or Parenting Seminars are also offered during the year. Child care is available for Sunday programs and most special programs.

Bible Study

Bible study classes are held on Tuesdays from 10-11:30 a.m. Each group picks a book of the Bible and studies it along with curriculum or commentary sources. 

A Men’s Bible Study Group also meets the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 6:30 a.m. at Prairie Joe’s restaurant at 1921 Central Street in Evanston.

Prayer Chain

Northminster’s Prayer Chain prays for the joys and concerns of our members in a linked network. Members maintain confidentiality and privacy while praying individually upon receiving e-mail prayer requests or with a telephone partner at a set time each week.

If you have prayer requests or if you would like to be a part of this rewarding ministry, contact Mindy Pierce.

Academy of Reformed Theology

We participate in a cooperative Adult Education initiative called ART: The Academy of Reformed Theology.  ART classes meet two to three times a year and are hosted at Northminster,  Winnetka Presbyterian Church, and First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette.  Together, our churches have worked to create this exciting educational experience for church members who want to go deeper into biblical study and discipleship.

Classes are open to all adults for a nominal fee and child care is provided.  If you’d like to learn more about ART, contact Pastor Jessica Gregory.

One Church/One Book

Twice a year NPC members are invited to read a book as a community.  The themes from this book are brought out in adult education, mission and worship in various ways.  Additionally, congregation members facilitate small group book discussions.  Recently we read Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion by Gregory Boyle and Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger.

Friends in Faith

Friends in Faith, an informal gathering of fellowship and prayer, meets on the first Tuesday morning of the month from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at Kurt’s Café in Evanston.
